"This student will thrive at our University."


That statement is what you want every interviewer to write about you after your interview.

My College Interview Prep can help you achieve that goal by teaching you to articulate how your greatest strengths are a perfect fit for what the school has to offer. 

Through one-on-one counseling and mock interview practice, you will gain the skills you need to ace your interview. 

Don't be afraid of your college interviews...be prepared!!


Interview Preparation

A series of one-on-one meetings in which we identify and articulate the students strongest assets and passions.  With these in mind, we design an approach to responding to common college interview questions.  A mock interview can be added to this package.

Mock Interview

A one hour mock interview mimics a college interview and gives the student a chance to respond to commonly asked interview questions in a non-evaluative environment.  The student is provided written feedback after the interview.

About Lori

Lori Cooper has spent almost 25 years sitting across from hopeful students trying to make their best impression.

Lori works with students to create a confident, successful interview experience. And these skills will help students navigate life beyond college as they prepare for graduate school, internships and job interviews.
